Library subject support

The Library's Academic Liaison team act as the first point of contact between the academic schools and the Library. We offer support to students, researchers and lecturers.

What we do

We're here to advise you on literature searching, referencing, using LibrarySearch and digital resources, Open Access, and research data management. We offer training sessions and individual consultations.

We also look after library resources and curate subject library resource guides that highlight the best resources for your subject.
